South African comedian Tats Nkonzo is going international. Tats, who was selected to represent South Africa at the Montreux Comedy Contest last year, has been signed to Mick Perrin Worldwide, which represents some of the best comedians in the world.
Perrin's stable is one of the biggest names in the comedy business, and hasalso worked with Trevor Noah.
Gregoire Furrer, founder of the Montreux Comedy Contest, said:
"Comedy is a global art form and should have no borders. When we conceived the contest, our intention was to break down these borders and bring the comedy world together. I’m very happy that through this global talent search, we can now create opportunities like this for talented comedians like Tats and others. I wish him every success in his new adventure with Mick Perrin Worldwide."
Speaking about this opportunity, Tats said: "I’d like to thank Trevor Noah and Loyiso Gola’s parents for having relations in order for their sons to grow up and show me that it can be done. Durex nearly messed this up for me. But that’s in the past. It’s all very exciting."
Have you ever heard a funnier acceptance speech? Congrats Tats,
